Phnom Penh, Cambodia

It was a six hour bus ride from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. It was a surprisingly ok journey since we travelled on a public bus. Plenty of leg room and airconditioning. There was lots of intersting scenery on the way, mainly farmhouses built on wooden stilts. Phnom Penh is a crazy city, the streets are lined with street sellers, tuk tuk and motorbike taxis and the roads are very difficult to cross if you value your life! It seems to be a free for all with little regards for traffic lights and even motorbikes driving on the wrong side against the flow of traffic, insane!
In the evening we went to a restuarant that supports children from an orphanage, and afterwards went to a cool club, Chenda seems to know the best restaurants and clubs and so far we haven't had a bad meal. It's fairly cheap to eat here, about 3 U.S dollars for a meal, usually rice, noodles, or curry, really great food!
